Fellow installers, the instructions are rather vague (it took me 10 minutes to locate the shoulder bolts ) what helped you decide to use bolts by their length? I currently have one hinge attached to a door with 4 of the 8 shorter bolts. The longest bolts have me a tad confused!
I used the long bolts (4-ea) on the bottom. (the thickest part of the hinge that bolts to the body)
The lower one goes all the way through and uses a nut on the backside.
I used the shorter ones on the top of the hinge into the body and the middle length into the door.
I used the nuts off of the long bolts as jam nuts on the backside of the ones into the door for extra holding power.
There were only two of the nuts left after using two on the bottom long bolt so I had to buy some more.
I`m not sure why they send nuts for all of the long bolts unless maybe they go on the bottom where they thread through the body.
